.m. eastern surrounded by americans who have been helped by the health care law. just announced this morning, this thursday, msnbc "hardball" host chris matthews will have a sitdown with president obama joined by students from american universities. the so-called young invincibles that the white house needs to reach. each and every day between now and december the 23rd, the administration and congressional democrats will hold an event touting a different positive aspect of the health care law, just like those advent calendars so many of us are using this time of year. seems familiar, right? the ones where every day of the month you pop open another door and reveal something special inside? three years after he signed the affordable care act into law, two months after the botched rollout of the health care website, the administration hopes a three-week campaign will remind all americans why they're doing this in the first place. >> how hard of a slog is it going to be for the white house to try to turn this around? >> i think it's going to be difficult. ultimately they have to prove successfu

out at this event with americans who are already benefitting from the law. he's going to talk about the benefits they're getting, young people can stay on their parents' insurance, no more discrimination against people who have pre-existing conditions. now, on the other hand, the white house has had three years to make this case. so why is this any different? >> well, because now it's actually happening. and, you know, regular people are seeing the benefits of it. for years you've noticed the main thing that they would trot out was if you repeal health care, kids under 26 are going to get thrown off their parents' plans and republicans had a quick response to that. they'd say, well, okay, we'll keep that part of it and throw the rest of it out. but now the meat of the thing is actually getting implemented. more than 100,000 people last month, it's going to be more than that as it gets to the deadline and the website starts working. so actual people are getting actual health care, which means it's much harder for you to roll back this program. so it really puts republicans in a diffi

a lousy job rolling out the health care law. it's not enough to say they turned in their work sloppy. no, the screaming you hear now is liar, liar pants on fire. it's an escalation of the old refrain the president's not who he says he is. nobody knew him in school, went the donald trump rant. he's not from here. now comes the charge the president's health care law is not on the level. that the president didn't just fail to get it right the first time, he's a liar. and on benghazi, he's something else they say. howard fineman and sam stein are both with "the huffington post" and both msnbc contributors. ted cruz's trail buddy has taken it to new heights. during a hangout yesterday, the texas senator used the issues of benghazi and the affordable care act to accuse the president of something truly sinister. let's listen. >> i think the current administration has taken liying to a new level. to me that's one of the most aggravating thing about what's happening in washington these days. particularly about this administration. which is a lack of accountability. and the willingness to mislead

. this was found to be a violation of antitrust laws in the early part of the century, similarly for a group -- a publishers association that grew increasingly upset because there was a great deal of price slashing in books sold -- their books sold by the major department stores like macy's. and they set in motion a kind of price fixing activity that covered both copyrighted and uncopyrighted works. they were knocked down by the supreme court for antitrust publishing. one thing i would add is that to the extent this could become a large-scale phenomenon, i think it would run up against strong antitrust law that might step it down. they're not going to sue chef so-and-so for participating in chef a with chef be and probably not sue robin williams for recognizing the in formal rights of some other stand up comedian. but if i got larger i think would run up against an antitrust problem.
